Agriculture's Everyday Superheroes

Here at the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), we believe America’s farmers, ranchers and foresters are superheroes. They maybe don’t wear capes or fight crime, but they do super important work, growing our nation’s food, fiber and fuel. They do this despite challenges from Mother Nature and ups and downs in the market. They do this despite challenges from Mother Nature and ups and downs in the market.

#Fridaysonthefarm: Planning Boosts Forest Health and Management

From the kitchen table to the boardroom table, the USDA brings people together across the nation for: healthier food, natural resources and people; a stronger agricultural industry; and economic growth, jobs and innovation. Each Friday, meet those farmers, producers and landowners through our #Fridaysonthefarm stories. Visit local farms, ranches, forests and resource areas where USDA customers and partners do right and feed everyone.

Own a Dairy? Get Help from USDA.

Dairy farmers kick off their days in the wee hours of the morning, and it’s often after dusk when they can hit the hay, and then wake up and do it all over again.

USDA knows dairy farmers – as well as all the nation’s farmers, ranchers, and foresters – have busy jobs.
